About the film
T’Challa, prince of the hidden nation of Wakanda, must return to his homeland in the wake of his father’s death to assume the throne and take up the mantle of the “Black Panther”. Killmonger, a rival from another tribe, also returns, seeking to take the throne for himself and reveal Wakanda’s advanced technological secrets to the world at-large.
Starring the late-great Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan, BLACK PANTHER won three Academy Awards and was the first superhero film to win an Oscar for Best Picture. It is the unquestionable jewel in the crown of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
